4 GB limit on installation

I tried to install W2000 on a bare system with only one 9.1 Gbyte disk. Error message appear after booting from the W2000-CD that no disks are present.
Using smartstart I am able to install W2000 but then I have a limited disk space ( partition) between 2 and 4 GB. Is there a way to use all of the disk?

Re: 4 GB limit on installation

Do a manual Smartstart install... This will allow you to configure the hardware and load the System Partition but Win2K will have complete control over the actual OS install. Smartstart still uses a FAT (not FAT32) stage in setup that limits it to 4GB...

A bit late for this, but doesn't the Smart Start 5 allow you to create much bigger paritions. From what I have seen it would easily allow you to create a 9gb System Partition.
